Although it raised the hackles on the necks of neighbors in Cherry Creek North who
tried to stop it, Clayton Lane is now nearing completion. Built on the former parking lot of the Sears store, the project is a handsome set of neo-modernist buildings that includes offices, condos, retail and a luxury hotel. David Tryba, one of the city's best architects, designed the complex, which is being developed by the Nichols Partnership. The interplay of the various buildings on the tight site is very nice, as is the expert orchestration of the beautiful materials. With Clayton Lane, Denver has a brand-new landmark. And in the highly commercial Cherry Creek, no less!
